A great little motherboard. Was easy to work with and had all the features I needed. Small gripe is the position CMOS header tucked behind the IO shield. Only paried it with a 3100 cpu so plenty of scope for later upgrades. The second M.2 port is appreciated.

Great board at a great price, went for this over any other ITX board on the market based on the features for the price, the front USB-C header is great and is missing on other similarly priced boards. The board looks great, the sleek black with no RGB is a breath of fresh air for current mobos would 100% recommend! A few little issues I have picked up are the front IO connectors and HD audio are in a little bit of a weird place but with some cable management, it looks fine. Maybe this ones just me but the bios is a little confusing, I have had multiple MSI boards in the past but for some reason on this one I can't seem to view a complete list of boot priority, but as I said, that may just be me. And as some reviews have already said the clear CMOS issue that is picked up by some reviewers has been rectified and the board I received has a cut out in the back to short the pins.

10/10 would buy again as it works great wifi 6 compatibility and usb 3.2 gen 2 headers is great as not many boards have this. Easy to enable xmp to reach my ram speeds

This a quality board that offers a lot of features and looks great and I am absolutely thrilled with the purchase. It is also much more competitively priced than the other B550 ITX boards (some of which actually have less features) Pros: - Great range of features: front usb-c header, wifi 6, two M.2 slots (1 has active cooling which is controllable and quiet, 1 on the rear), solid VRM and heatsink -Additional features like bios flashback (enables you to update BIOS for compatibility with ryzen 5000 series CPUs without needing an older CPU) and diagnostic lights (so you can troubleshoot whether it's your RAM/CPU/GPU or something else when your pc doesn't boot) that gives you real peace of mind, especially if you are first time builder like me! -Sleek,understated, dark looks with a professional looking I/O shield that doesn't look like a 14-year old gamer designed it. And for me, no RGB is a plus! Cons (these are more nitpicks than cons) - The hd audio and front panel connector headers are not in the most ideal position, being at the bottom left of the board which means routing these cables over the top of the VRM and next to the CPU cooler. However, to be clear this does not affect performance in any way and just required a bit more fiddling when connecting. This is the price you pay when going small form factor. -Be aware there are 2 fan headers, so you will need a splitter if you want to run more than that (personally I only run 2 fans so it was fine) Final Note: -CMOS jumper: I've seen a lot of older reviews complain about the location of the CMOS jumper, being behind the I/O shield and not being readily accessible. This is no longer an issue. Apparently when this board first came out, it was not possible to reset the CMOS easily because the jumper was hidden behind the I/O, but it's clear that MSI have listened as on my board (purchased late Nov 2020) this has been rectified with a small cut out on the I/O. Also apparently a BIOS update allows you to hold the power button for 5-10 sec to reset the CMOS.

MSI MPG B550I GAMING EDGE WIFI was the best option for me: port USB-C front panel connector, 2x m2 slots with one running at full 4.0 and a NVME heatsink, WiFi 6 (for the future), ability to flash a BIOS without CPU. Having not RGB is a plus. You need remember that not all cpu coolers are compatibility with this motherboard I use it with ryzen 5 3600, Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3600 16-18-18-38 (xmp profile1) - working perfect. I can't say nothing wrong afeter one week. MSI bios isn't my faworite but is ok.

Purchased this motherboard as I decided on an ITX build. A few reasons I chose this motherboard was the ease of mind that this motherboard will support an upgraded CPU in future, 2x M.2 slots and the USB ports. Build quality is good and features such as USB ports, Wifi, bluetooth etc. are another plus. The item came packaged well, though the screws for the M.2 heatsink were nearly lost a few times - it would be better if the heatsink and screws came in a separate plastic bag. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

This board was at a good price and has connectors not found on even some x570 boards that were important to me (2.5gb ethernet and SPDIF audio)

If you have a ryzen 5000 series processor and need an ITX mobo, I'd recommend B550i and of all the choices, you can't get much better than the MSI MPG B550I motherboard. Compared to X570i counterparts, you get 2.5G LAN which makes it more future proof. The extra pcie4 lanes you'd get on X570 isn't really of use in an ITX build in my opinion. There were complaints of the clear cmos being inaccessible after installation of these boards, but even that is resolved in the latest revision. With that revision, at only 150, it's better than gigabyte's equivalent as it has more features and better than asus and asrock as it's significantly cheaper with no less features.

This is my first board since the 300 series AMD motherboards and I have to say I am impressed! Not only does the board feel high quality but the functionality is also amazing! The huge VRM heat sink helps keeps temps cool and the reinforced PCIE slot is another great bonus. The board is not without issues though, there are only really two issues that irk me with this motherboard the first being the RAM compatibility; coming from a 300 series mobo where I could put most RAM sticks in it was quite a shock to find this mobo is only compatible with certain modules (which are quite hard to find btw). My second gripe would be the clear CMOS button is located behind the IO shield which makes it hard to clear CMOS when you have completed the build especially in a SFF case. These gripes aside though the mobo is very handsome and would fit great in any mini-itx build and the build in functionality (bluetooth, wifi and memory overclocking) makes this mobo a worthy upgrade for anyone coming from an older series.

Bought this due to price & brand reputation as I was looking for a budget B550 due to compatibility for new Ryzen CPU's. Seems to be a great find as it is capable of overclocking, HDMI 2.1, included WiFi 6 & Bluetooth 5.1, VRM heatsink with plenty of USB options within I/O. Only issue seems to be the CPU socket as it is in a different location compared to standard which makes may make non-stock cooler an issue which why I rate it 4 stars rather than 5 but other than that great gaming motherboard especially considering price.

So far working great! Performance-wise the B550i motherboards are all quite similar, so for this purchase, I was looking at the extra features and price. In this regards, the MSI was the cheapest with a USB-C front header; additionally, it also had the optical link audio out and full 5 channel output which I thought was a good little bonus if I upgraded my speakers later on. Together with the promotions through black Friday, its an unbeatable deal really. So far its been working great, recognising the XMP profile with ease, and I was pleasantly surprised to see they had fixed the access to the clear CMOS pins after feedback from the community. Only downsides I see are the bit excessive branding, with the prominent dragon on the VRM thermal cover, and non stock backplate which can make mounting certain coolers tricky (doesn't affect me as I am using and AIO), the BIOS is also a bit of an eyesore and slightly more convoluted than expected. I would have expected MSI to be a bit more subtle with what would have otherwise been such clean looking board. For these, it loses a star, but otherwise, fantastic board!

This is a fantastic B550 ITX motherboard: - Solid VRM that handle any Ryzen 3000 and Zen 3 - WiFi 6 and 2.5G Ethernet port (great for gaming or streaming or connect to NAS drive) - Great port selection (including a front connector for USB-C) - 2x M2 slots (one PCIe 4.0 with heatsink and one PCIe 3.0 in back for extra storage)

Being my first ITX morther board purchase I'm really impressed with the build quality of this product, my past 7 builds have been full sized AT. With front USB-C port, its been a fine addition to my ITX pc build that hosts a 3700x and runs perfectly fine off the bat.

Great motherboard for Mini-ITX builds. It has 2 M.2 slots for storage and a connector for the front USB-C port on your case if you have one. I recommend this motherboard to anyone doing an AMD Mini-ITX build.

Great product and the BIOS Flash without CPU is super easy to do. Running nicely with my new Ryzen 5 5600X CPU.
